Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J8 THE IETHERIOGE HERAIO Saturday, September 1, 1973------------------- Cubs fall three off the pace as Pirates charge ucs trying to board ship By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pittsburgh Pirates moved to within one game of first-place St. Louis Cardinals in the Na-1 t.ional League East by sweeping Chicago Cabs 7-0 and 5-2 in a doubleheailer Friday night. That's the closest Pittsburgh has been to first place since May U. but manager Bill Vir- don wasn't about to get excited about the two baseball wins. "Just two more ball games." he said. "They're all big from here on, but day to day is the only way we can play." In Friday's other National League games. New York Mets downed "the Cardinals 6-4 in 10 innings. Montreal Expos topped Philadelphia Phillies 5-2, Cincin- nati Reds pounded San Diego Padres 104. Houston" Astros de- feated, Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 and Atlanta Braves whipped San Francisco Giants 10-4. I Virdon explained that he didn't regard Friday's double- i header sweep as crucial be- cause "we could leave after i Wednesday's game with St. I Louis and be right back where we started tonight." Five consecutive two-out sin- gles in the 10th inning produced i three runs and carried the Mets I past the Cardinals. Bernie Alien hit a two-run homer and Mike Marshall gained his 26th save for the Expos as they dropped the Phillies into last place in the I National League East. Tony Perez knocked in five i runs with a single, a double and i his 22nd homer and Dan Dries- sen Collected four hits for tie Reds. Lee May's two-run homer in i the ninth gave the Astros their win to cut the Dodgers' Na- i tional League West lead over I the Reds to three games. i. Pitcher Roric Harrison slammed a three-ran homer in I Atlanta's decisive seven-run i third inning against San Fran- I Cisco's 20-game winner, Ron Bryant. j Today, the Cubs start Milt j Pappes, 6-10. against the Pi- I rates' Brace Kison, just re- i called from the minors, in a day game.
